Tabb postpones trip to UNC

Tight end Jack Tabb has taken one official visit so far this fall and he was scheduled to take his second, to North Carolina, this weekend.

That trip won't be happening, at least for a while.

The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect from Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic is still playing football games of his own, so he will have to postpone his trip to Chapel Hill.

"I was planning on going but we're playing Bergen Catholic in the playoffs so I have to push it back," Tabb said. "I'm still going to go but just not this weekend."

Tabb's first official visit was to Iowa and that trip went extremely well. He experienced a new part of the country and realized he could be happy at the Big Ten school.

"That was a great trip," he recalled. "That really opened my eyes to what goes on there. I feel like I'm going to need to see that on all my officials. The depth chart ... they need people to come in there and help. I could come in and learn the system and play fairly soon. I would have to learn but there's some need there. They're looking at me for an outside linebacker spot, which I'm comfortable at. It looks like a pretty good place at this point."

Tabb still has an official visit to Michigan planned for the weekend of November 19, though that is subject to change pending the outcome of Red Bank Catholic's game this weekend.

"I was looking to maybe set up another (official) to Arkansas or somewhere else," he continued. "I'm not really quite sure yet. I'm kind of looking at all my options."

Tabb recently trimmed his list to eight schools. Arkansas, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Rutgers and Wisconsin made the cut.

Red Bank Catholic is 7-1 on the season.

Tabb has registered 50 tackles, forced a fumble and recovered two more this year, while also returning an interception for a touchdown. On offense he has 17 receptions for about 360 yards and four touchdowns in six games.
